I’ve been teaching for over a decade. I have taught undergraduate students, graduate students, and even high school students. I have taught lower-level introductory courses, upper-level seminars, required courses, and elective courses. I have taught face-to-face courses and online courses. You name it, I’ve taught it, but nothing quite prepared me for the Introduction to Psychology course I taught in the summer of 2017. The preparation for teaching the course started the same way I had started every other course in my time as an educator. I thought about the learning objectives for the course, what I wanted my students to leave the class with, how to lay out each lesson, and what assignments I would use to enhance learning. On the first day of class I showed up with 25 freshly printed syllabi, the textbook, and excitement to get to know a new group of students. I confidently marched in to the building only to be told by the officer at the gate that I was “not clear” for entering the facility. You see, this was a typical Introductory Psychology course, but I was teaching it somewhere I’d never taught before: in prison.

My first year in the Clinical Professional Counseling program has been an amazing experience. While I have been super busy since I started the program, I know I am getting a worthwhile degree. Loyola was my first encounter with a Jesuit institution and to say the least, early on I noticed the differences.

At Loyola University Maryland we pride ourselves on the education we provide in the classroom—often speaking to the Jesuit difference, strong program and University rankings, and student experience. However, Loyola's psychology faculty are not only accomplished educators, but also accomplished writers, editors, and researchers. This is just a small sample of the great work that Loyola psychology faculty have completed outside of the classroom.
